“Just before everything went black, I pictured the headline of my obituary:  FRIENDLESS NERD KILLED BY PEANUT.”  Ambrose Bukowski is the 12-year-old son of an overprotective single mother and he doesn’t fit in anywhere.   He doesn’t have a lot of people skills and even adults are sometimes stunned by the things he says.  Ambrose does have an indomitable spirit and a wry sense of humor.  He also excels at Scrabble.  Readers in grades 7 to 9 will love following Ambrose on his journey.
